After the Flood: Eklavya Prasad's Photographs of Life in North Bihar, India


Eklavya Prasad has photographed the lives of people in rural India while leading his grassroots campaign, Megh Pyne Abhiyan (Cloud Water Campaign), to supply safe and secure drinking water to the flood-prone areas in North Bihar, India. Prasad’s images capture the complexity and beauty of the human spirit and depict the strength, determination, and vivacity of the people as they work to survive the floodwaters.
